Spot Coffee Temporary Closing

Spot Coffee is temporarily closing five of its Buffalo-area cafés as a safety precaution as Covid-19 cases rise and much of Erie County is placed under the state's "orange zone" restrictions.

The company on Thursday afternoon announced on social media that the five stores would close effective Friday but did not say how long the closures would last.

The affected locations are: Delaware Avenue at West Chippewa Street, Elmwood Avenue and Hertel Avenue, all in Buffalo; Main Street in Williamsville and Transit Road in Clarence.

The chain has 23 coffee shops, including franchise locations, throughout metro Buffalo, upstate New York and even one in Connecticut, according to its website.
